ipsy glam bag january 2017 reveal: metropolis

It’s that time of month again: ipsy glam bag time! This month’s theme is metropolis and I’m definitely getting some city vibes from the bag design – love the silver/blue combo! Let’s peek inside my bag…

First off, I love getting makeup brushes, so receiving the crown brushes’ contour brush is amazing. I could never have too many brushes. Plus this works great with the balm cosmetics’ bahama mama bronzer I received. Love that this looks like a little book – and I’ve heard this is a good dupe for the Hoola bronzer from Benefit. We shall see…I’ll have to swatch them side-by-side. Also, this would be a great everyday, slap some color on your lids type of eyeshadow, since it’s a nice warm brown.

Speaking of eyeshadow, I did receive the naked cosmetics’ pigment in desert sunset. It’s such a beautiful champagne shimmer shade, so it’s another one of those one-and-one eyeshadows. I rarely touch pigments, but the color is so beautiful, I just have to try it!

The next thing in my bag is the jelly pong pong coffee + coconut lip scrub. Honestly, lip scrubs are just not my thing. I find them to be extremely oily, messy, and I don’t like the harshness of it. I might pass this along to someone who may like it a bit more.

Finally, I received a ciate gelology top coat. I love painting my nails and I’m on the hunt for another top coat that helps keep my polish looking great for a longer period of time. This looks like it could be a winner. Plus the bottle is so chic – it’s mirrored and looks amazing. I’ll try this out when my nails are due for a re-paint.

All in all, pretty pleased with this bag! Plus, I always love getting new makeup bags and this one is absolutely gorgeous.
